AMC‘s critically acclaimed Med Men is not a show that we would typically feature here at Nerd Bastards. It’s a bit out of a nerdy wheelhouse. However, it’s so fucking good that we can’t help but mention it.
Madmen takes us into a Manhattan advertising agency before and during the Vietnam war. The men wear snappy suits, smoke like chimneys, and drink like fish. The women, oh the women, they dress and have curves. The show deals with so many issues such as race, marriage and parenting. The brilliance is all in the subtext. Many lines have double or even triple meanings.
While I could go on and on praising the show, I’ll simply say the style, writing and acting is truly phenomenal. This is one of those must watch shows.
Anyway, AMC has released a bunch of promo trailers for Mad Men season 5 announcing that all of our favorite characters will be back to bring on the drama. The characters included in the teasers are for Joan (Christina Hendricks), Roger (John Slattery), Peggy (Elisabeth Moss), Betty (January Jones), Pete (Vincent Kartheiser), and of course, Don (Jon Hamm).
